Good and different reality series!, 11 December 2008
Author: seanprussel from United States

I'm not much for reality shows , but this one is pretty good. It has a mixture of seriousness, comedy and heartache.

The story particularly where the young officer Norris was killed was shocking and unexpected. Interesting the way they train these officers, the drama of each call, and how they handle each situation. I also find it interesting the way each rookie is critiqued by the FTO on the way they handle each situation. You almost try and figure out what the rookie is doing wrong before the training officer points it out.

If you are looking for a different take and reality series and tired of watching the 5 minute scenarios of the stale Cops (Bad Boys,Bad Boys what you gonna do)give this series a look. You will enjoy it.

Look forward to hopefully a long running series from different precincts.
